I confess I quite like the Kathy Reichs novels, even though they are all very similar and most of them have plots that don't completely hold up to analysis. This one was no different. It was good fun, but I worked out more or less what was happening quite early on. Also, the characters are very black-and-white, and a lot of the problems encountered by them would have been solved with a little more in the way of communication skills. But hey, it's not meant to be Tolstoy. It rolls along at a good pace and has enough going for it that the pages keep turning.
  I think I'm bold enough to recommend all Reichs' novels for a light read, and this one is no exception.
